LRBY streaming to mpv?

Post by archification » Tue Feb 04, 2020 5:06 am

I can play youtube videos and twitch streams by giving the url to mpv. Haven't tried LRBY yet myself. Asking here first. Maybe people have suggestions I didn't think about.

I can play LBRY in mpv. If I open one of my videos in Firefox, for example, this video: https://lbry.tv/@DistroTube:2/broot-is- ... navigate:9

If I right-click on it, and choose "View Video" it gives me this link: https://player.lbry.tv/content/claims/b ... ece/stream

Code: Select all

mpv https://player.lbry.tv/content/claims/broot-is-a-better-way-to-navigate/9d8091696e0f9793eb3bebc26c76f75ce47f4ece/stream
